Beauty Tips: Homemade Lip Gloss

Ingredients: 

  • Petroleum Jelly
  • Left Lipstick/Eyeshadow/Cream Blush
  • Plastic Zipper Bag

Instructions:

  • Wash and dry an empty lidded lip gloss pot or eye shadow container.

  • Scoop 1/2 tablespoon of petroleum jelly into a plastic zippered bag.

  • Scrape off a small amount of lipstick, cream blush or mineral eye shadow in the color of your choice and put it in the bag with the petroleum jelly. Start with a small amount to see if the color is the right shade. You can always add more later.
  • Close the plastic zippered bag while letting out the air.
  • Squeeze and squish the outside of the bag to mix the petroleum jelly with the colored cosmetic. Press gently but thoroughly to blend the color into the petroleum jelly completely.
  • Unzip the bag when the mixture looks smooth and the color is even. Dip in the scooping stick or the tip of the spatula and remove a small amount of the colored petroleum jelly. Slide it on your lips to determine if you have achieved the appropriate shade.
  • Add more lipstick, blush or shadow if you want to go darker. Close the bag and knead it as you did before.
  • Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag once you have the shade you want, and squeeze the lip gloss into the container.

 

 

Accessory Barn: Capri-Sun Purse

Materials:

  • 10 CapriSun (or brand of choice…) juice pouches
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
Directions: 
  • Lay 2 Capri Sun bags side by side, graphics up, so that one bag overlaps the other by about a 1/4 inch. Sew them together at the overlap using a zigzag stitch. Repeat this step to make a front and a back to the Capri Sun purse.
  • Sew another 2 bags together as you did in Step 1. Then, cut the bags in half lengthwise and fold each half into thirds. Sew the fold in place using the zig-zag stitch. These are the straps to the Capri Sun purse. Attach one handle to the front and one to the back.
  • Make the bottom by overlapping two juice bags using the purse front as a guide to determine the proper length. Sew them together. Create the side panels by sewing a juice bag to the end of the bottom with the graphics facing upright.
  • Stitch one side of the front piece to one side piece, making sure the graphics are face the right direction. Leave 1/4 inch at the bottom. Stitch the other side piece to the back. The result should be a “Z” shaped figure with the graphics on one side and the gray on the other side.
  • Bend the purse into shape and stitch the remaining sides together, leaving the 1/4 inch at the bottom. The bottom should not be connected to the front or back at this point.
  • Attach the front to the bottom. You may find it easier to work with if you fold the purse as you would a paper bag. Do the same to attach the back to the bottom. Sew from one edge all the way to the other. This closes up the gap you left at the bottom of each side seam.

 

Accessories Barn: Hair Scrunchies

Materials:

  • Fabric strips
  • Sewing elastic
  • Safety pins
  • Masking tape
  • Hot glue gun

Instructions:

  • Lay the fabric strip right side up on a smooth working surface, so that the long edges are at the top and bottom. Apply a line of hot glue (a parent’s job) along the upper edge of the material.
  • Let the glue cool for a few seconds, then fold the fabric in half, pressing the lower edge of the strip onto the glued edge. The result should be a cloth tube. Next, attach a safety pin to each end of the elastic and thread the elastic through the center of the fabric (to make this easier, tape one of the pins to the end of a pencil and then pull the material down over the pencil).
  • Once the elastic is threaded, join the ends by clipping the two safety pins together. Wrap tape around the pins to keep them from opening.
  • To finish, pull one end of the fabric tube over the other end, overlapping about an inch, and glue the loop closed. Adjust the fabric so that the gathered material is evenly distributed around the circle.

NOTE: These are the suggested measurements- 8 inches of elastic and fabric that is 21 inches long and about 3 inches wide.
